Fire Will Reign in Final Trailer for HOUSE OF THE DRAGON

HBO Max has released the final trailer for the long-awaited Game of Thrones prequel series House of the Dragon. This is the final trailer for the fantasy epic, which is set to premiere this Sunday! I’ve got high hopes for this show, and I hope it delivers a great story!

The trailer is titled “Fire Will Reign,” and it begins with the voice of Viserys Targaryen saying: “The road ahead is uncertain, but the end is clear. We are better defended… by whomever may dare to challenge us.” The clip concludes with him saying, “The threat of war looms.”

The series is based on George R.R. Martin’s Fire & Blood series, which is set 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones and tells the story of House Targaryen. Here’s the synopsis:

Centuries before the events of A Game of Thrones, House Targaryen—the only family of dragonlords to survive the Doom of Valyria—took up residence on Dragonstone. Fire & Blood begins their tale with the legendary Aegon the Conqueror, creator of the Iron Throne, and goes on to recount the generations of Targaryens who fought to hold that iconic seat, all the way up to the civil war that nearly tore their dynasty apart.

What really happened during the Dance of the Dragons? Why was it so deadly to visit Valyria after the Doom? What were Maegor the Cruel’s worst crimes? What was it like in Westeros when dragons ruled the skies? These are but a few of the questions answered in this essential chronicle, as related by a learned maester of the Citadel and featuring more than eighty all-new black-and-white illustrations by artist Doug Wheatley. Readers have glimpsed small parts of this narrative in such volumes as The World of Ice & Fire, but now, for the first time, the full tapestry of Targaryen history is revealed.

House of the Dragon stars Paddy Considine as King Viserys Targaryen, Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen, Rhys Ifans as Otto Hightower, Emma D’Arcy as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, Olivia Cooke as Alicent Hightower, Steve Toussaint as Lord Corlys Velaryon, Eve Best as Princess Rhaenys Velaryon, Sonoya Mizuno as Mysaria, Fabien Frankel as Ser Criston Cole, and more.

House of the Dragon will drop on August 12th, 2022.
